The new round of snow will likely mean more potholes.

Since Mayor Bill de Blasio started his term on Jan. 1 more than 83,000 have been filled.

The snow, ice and cold are to blame for the potentially hazardous craters all around the city.

Officials say as soon as the snow cleanup is done they'll get back to work.

"We can tackle potholes and also see what we can do to improve overall the conditions of roads. This winter, we're on storm number six and sanitation is doing a wonderful job with plowing, salt, chains on buses, but all of it adds to the wear and tear on the roadways," said DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg.

This past weekend, 7,000 potholes were filled, according to the city.
